Choosing the Perfect Kayak Dolly
Choosing a kayak cart can be difficult if you aren’t sure where to start. However, there are a few things you should look for to ensure the cart you choose is right for you and your boat. We’ll go over some of these options and what they mean for you when making a purchase or researching carts.
Since you are using the cart to move your kayak from one place to another, the wheels are an important component to consider. The largest wheels are going to have the easiest time on tricky terrain, so those are often more popular. In addition, having wheels that are airless or otherwise impenetrable will ensure that any rocks and debris in your path won’t stop you in your tracks.
Some carts come with adjustable widths, which can be useful if you plan to transport various types of kayaks. If you plan only to transport one, it may not be worth an additional price. This is largely a matter of preference and may depend on whether you have a single kayak or a few.
Ease of Storage
Once you move your kayak wherever you are going, you want to be able to store it easily. Models that can be broken down or easily disassembled tend to be popular because you can store them in your car or, in some cases, even on your boat itself. However, large wheels can be more difficult to store so keep that in mind, too.
At this point we’ve shared our favorite ten kayak carts and some pointers on choosing one of your own. Any of the carts on this list are backed by positive reviews and should be durable and easy to use. Consider what you need for your specific kayak and go from there. Good luck!
